Two footballers raped a drunk woman as a third man tried to film them through a hotel window on a mobile phone, a court has heard.

The Wales and Sheffield United striker Ched Evans and Port Vale defender Clayton McDonald, both 23, deny the attack at a Premier Inn near Rhyl.

Caernarfon Crown Court heard that both admitted having sex with the 19-year-old who was described as too drunk to consent.

John Philpotts, prosecuting, said McDonald and Evans had told police they had sex with the complainant, who cannot legally be identified. Philpotts said that an "associate" of the pair and Evans' brother watched through a window. The trial continues.
